RE: Re: Windows domain authentication error

Oh, I completely forgot about the username issues, but here's what I
found out: you'll need every name in the authz file at least twice
(three times for good measure). Windows isn't case-sensitive, but Svn
is, so you'll need one with domain and username in all caps and one with
just the username in all lowercase chars. To make it slightly simpler on
users, I recommend you add a third with the domain and username in all
lowercase chars. Here's an excerpt from mine:
svn-admin = DOMAIN\FLANAKINM, domain\flanakinm, flanakinm
@svn-admin = rw

Try one of these things (but not necessarily all at the same time):

1 - don't use your domain name when logging in. You are already
specifying a domain in your SSPI configuration.

2 - Add your domain name in front of your username in your AUTHZ file.

3 - Uncomment the SSPIOmitDomain directive. If the domain is provided
on the front end, this should strip it off and provide the name only to
the authentication level.
